  Beam stability is a major concern for the operation of the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS). One of the many factors to instability of electron beam is mechanical vibration of the accelerator components. The TPS uses steel girders to support the magnets and vacuum chambers in the storage ring. Three pedestal and six mover assemblies support the girders. Multi-stage adjustable shock absorbers are designed for passive vibration damping, and presently installed between the girders and the pedestals. Through adjusting the amount of hydraulic fluid which bypasses the damping passage between two hydraulic chambers, the desired damping coefficient of the damping absorbers can be achieved. Experimental results of modal testing presented in this paper show that the multi-stage adjustable damping absorbers under the assembly of the girders reduced the level of girder vibration.

  A Laser positioning system, consist of a laser, laser position sensing devices (PSD) module and two granite blocks, is developed for the alignment inspection of TPS (Taiwan Photon Source) quadrupole and sextupole magnets during installation on a girder. The PSD module is adapted on the pole center of magnet and is designed to stand for mechanical center of magnets. For high accuracy, eliminating the influence of magnets manufacturing errors between PSD module is a major work. The PSD is mounted on a precise diameter expansible jig to absorb the manufacturing errors. The real roundness of the expansible jig can keep under 3um when diameter is expanded 80um. The PSD position is adjusted and corrected in advance, and then the PSD module center can be identical to the ideal pole position of magnets on the girder within 15um. The magnet will be aligned and adjusted by laser position on PSD. This paper describes how to eliminate the measuring error caused by magnet manufacturing error and the detail of alignment inspection procedure of magnets during the installation on a girder.

  The TPS (Taiwan photon source) project is under construction and will be finished in the December 2012. Considering the floor’s deformation with time and frequent earthquakes at Taiwan, the survey and alignment procedure should be taken quite often. For dealing with these difficulties and improving accuracy of girder’s position, a highly accurate auto-tuning girders system was designed to accomplish the alignment tasks. There are two cells of TPS girders and varied sensor modulus set up for testing the auto-tuning system. The adjustment of the system converges to less than 6um, and the repeatability of the testing is under 10 um. For improving the accuracy of girders position, that is critical thing to make sure all the calibration of sensors modulus correctly and accurately. The calibration procedure about sensor modular and testing results is described in this paper.
